Flying is typically connected with a sense of dread. Waiting in line to check-in and go through security, manoeuvring other passengers in cramped corridors, and waiting in a gate area with too few seats can make travelling an unpleasant journey.
However, there are places to escape the airport’s madness… such as the airport lounges. Thankfully, starting today, 1 July 2022, premium services will resume at Malaysia Airlines’ (MAS) Platinum Lounge at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
The domestic, regional, and Satellite Golden Lounges at KLIA, along with the airline’s flagship Platinum Lounge, have all been fully restored following a pause due to pandemic-related limitations.
Travellers and frequent flyers travelling via Business Suite, Enrich Platinum, Enrich CIMB World Elite, First Class on codeshare flights (Malaysia Airlines operated flights), oneworld First Class, and oneworld Emerald can enjoy the exclusive end-to-end premium services offered by the airline; from pre-departure via its meet and greet services, dedicated check-in counters located on Level 5, Row D upon arrival at KLIA, and access to its iconic Platinum Lounge.
The Platinum Lounge provides guests with great dining experiences and ample space to refuel before boarding their plane. At the Platinum Gallery, you may indulge in a three-course meal or choose from a wide selection of food and drink options at a luxury buffet. From local must-tries like Malaysian ox tail soup to worldwide classics like chicken roulade and crowd-pleasing Tiramisu and apple crumble, guests have plenty of tempting selections to pick from.
Other amenities available to passengers include a washroom, private shower suites, nap rooms, and the Platinum Suite, all of which allow them to get ready for their journey in comfort while enjoying the premium Malaysian Hospitality service.
Taking advantage of the airline’s newfound momentum in travel, the Platinum Lounge, which is situated at KLIA’s Satellite terminal, will be open 24 hours a daywhile the Satellite Golden Lounge will also be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
